The live action Aladdin cast has been announced

But where's Jade Thirlwall?

We love a live action Disney remake almost as much as we love all things Harry Potter, bizarre showbiz romances and a celebrity peen (and that's quite a lot – have you seen our celeb peen hub?).

So, when we heard that the cast of the new Aladdin movie had been announced we were SUPER excited, particularly as we'd been hearing rumours of a certain Little Mixer's involvement.

The news was announced at Disney's annual D23 Expo and broadcast on Twitter.

While live-tweeting the event, Kyle Buchanan revealed: "Just announced: MENA MASSOUD will play the title role in ALADDIN. Will Smith as the genie, Naomi Scott as Jasmine #D23Expo"

Mena Massoud is a Canadian actor who's also set to star in Amazon's Jack Ryan series and the film Strange But True.

Naomi Scott is taking on the role of Jasmine after starring as the Pink Ranger in the Power Rangers film.

And we literally can't think of a better Genie than Will Smith, tbh.
